Changing Gears

Just rain across this forum and thought I would add my rig. I have MS and have made two cross country trips The first in 2001 just over 5,000 miles the second in 2004, 10,000 + miles. Both trips were solo and as you notice the yellow rig is fully enclosed with bottom and motor. The first trip (rig with trailer) was all human powered. I have MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and unfortunately can't ride a the traditional two wheeler and family wouldn't let me go without some form of cover. All in all anyone that has never traveled across their home state or cross country is missing out on a once in a life time adventure. I applaud all that have and are planning on making a trip.

The title I chose here is most appropriate because living with MS is litterally changing gears in one's lifestyle.
